Probate is the legal process that a will goes through before assets are distributed to heirs in a will. Sounds simple, especially if a deceased has a written will already….
It is a process that can take anywhere from a few months to a couple of years. The length of time depends on if the will is being contested or if the deceased does not have written will then it will be up to the court and administrators to determine what the family members will each receive.
Every will is subjected to probate proceedings. The length of time depends on how contested the will is.
